It’s time to plant everything!
Clean out those beds, and get to planting for color all year! Prune back dead limbs on plants such as lantana, and cut back flower stalks on your bulb plants. After spring blooms, go ahead and prune shrubs such as your traditional Azaleas, not Encores, and Forsythia.
If you have a new bed, plan your space to have color all year by adding various shrubs in the background and complement with perennials and annuals to keep interest all year long.
A few dynamic shrubs to consider are the Varigated Radican Gardenia, Sunshine Ligustrum, and Orange Rocket Barberry.
Replace winter color with fresh spring color like geraniums, petunias, salvia, marigolds for the sun, and begonias, coleus, and caladiums for the shade. We have them all and can help with your design!
In April, if you haven’t already, you can plant most vegetables such as peppers, squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, eggplant, corn okra, peas and more. If your soil needs some juice, use our premium topsoil available by the tractor scoop. Surely the chance of a frost are now behind us, but don’t call me Shirley 😉
